Becoming smarter together does not happen by accident. It takes ideas, conversation, relationships, resources and effort. It takes the vision and leadership of City Council. It takes a government and its residents working together. We saw all of that come together in a variety of ways to make us proud in 2016. We had fantastic progress on several major projects, including the 270/33 interCHANGE, the Riverside Drive roundabout, the initial phases of the Bridge Street District, the Ohio University Dublin campus master plan, and, of course, the US 33 Smart Mobility Corridor.
